CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY
This ring was made of sterling silver (925) made by hand in my workshop.
This ring is etched on the outer circumference with the Latin expression Carpe Diem.
This famous sentence is taken from a poem written by Horace and means, "seize the day without worrying about tomorrow." It therefore means, "Seize the day" because we do not know what will happen tomorrow.
However, Horace is an epicurean, which means that this search for happiness enjoying each day can only be achieved by a discipline of wisdom and soul tranquility. So enjoy life without falling into excess either.
The ring Carpe Diem is a good example of engraved texts or sentences we can manufacture. Do not hesitate to contact us to make a personalized ring with the text of your choice. Please read our conditions on the page: Custom command.
The etching process takes time but the result allows appreciating the intricate and delicate patterns. The bas relief effect is really nice. The deeper part is matte and the upper part has been sanded and polished. Shiny finish.
Etching is an artisanal process which produces a unique design each time I use it. Two pieces with a same design will never be exactly the same by the hazards of the process. Each detail makes a unique piece.
Polished shinny finish.
Allow 3 working days for this ring.
Band width: 6 mm (0.236 inches).
